Book Description

3 Jan 2003 0335210384 978-0335210381
"...a well-rooted resource for bodywork courses and a useful introductory text for a broad audience." Caduceus

"It's not a big book but it's got a vast amount of information and knowledge in it. ...if you are interested in getting a good overall picture of the subject you couldn't do better." The Fulcrum

Body psychotherapy is an holistic therapy which approaches human beings as united bodymind, and offers embodied relationship as its central therapeutic stance. Well-known forms include Reichian Therapy, Bioenergetics, Dance Movement Therapy, Primal Integration and Process Oriented Psychology.

This new title examines the growing field of body psychotherapy:

  • Surveys the many forms of body psychotherapy
  • Describes what may happen in body psychotherapy and offers a theoretical account of how this is valuable drawing in current neuroscientific evidence
  • Defines the central concepts of the field, and the unique skills needed by practitioners
  • Accessible and practical, yet grounded throughout in current research
Body Psychotherapy: An Introduction is of interest to practitioners and students of all forms of psychotherapy and counselling, and anyone who wants to understand how mind and body together form a human being.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short, clear, informative 21 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Totton's Body Psychotherapy: An introduction is just what the title says. I may add that even being just an introduction to a rather complex psychotherapeutical approach it is unusually informative and very very clear even for the occasional learned but not professional reader. As a physician interested in rebirthing and breathwork, and in general in connections between mind and body and embodied emotions, I found this little book a pleasure to read. I recomend it to anyone interested to enter this amazing and rewarding healing field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Intro 23 Oct 2007
By J. Small - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book to acquaint oneself with the history of body psychotherapy. The fictional counseling sessions provide the opportunity to really envision how a body psychotherapist may work. Really enjoyed reading this book, and also felt that most of my questions that arose while reading, were answered only pages later. Would greatly recommend it.
